Most Recent Shark Bites

The Ravens will have DE Timmy Jernigan (shoulder), DL Brandon Williams (back) and OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot) active for today's game against the Bengals. All 3 entered the weekend questionable. Jernigan's the only real IDP option among the trio for most fantasy outfits.

Ravens CB Shareece Wright (thigh), LB C.J. Mosley (thigh) and DL Timmy Jernigan (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Cowboys. Use them as you normally would in IDP situations. Wright returns from 3 games lost to injury and has played in just 1 of Baltimore's past 5 contests. He has only delivered 2 quality fantasy outings for the year. Baltimore will be without top CB Jimmy Smith (back) and OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot).

The Ravens will likely miss at least CB Jimmy Smith (back) and OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot) Sunday against Dallas. Both players are doubtful. Smith put in just a limited practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Dumervil put in full workouts Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday. HC John Harbaugh told The Baltimore Sun that Dumervil looked good in practice this week but that his status would be up to the doctors. DE Timmy Jernigan (shoulder), LB C.J. Mosley (thigh) and CB Shareece Wright (thigh) are all questionable for the game. Jernigan joined the injury report Thursday and missed the final 2 workouts. He looks like a weak bet to play. Mosley, on the other hand, put in full practices Thursday and Friday, while Wright practiced in full every day. Both appear likely to play.

Ravens LB C.J. Mosley is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants after missing practice all week with a hamstring injury. That can only help the tackle upside for LB Zachary Orr, who already sat in starter range in our Week 6 LB rankings. Baltimore has also ruled out OLB Elvis Dumervil with a foot injury that will keep him out indefinitely, according to Pro Football Talk. Dumervil had offseason foot surgery and lacked explosiveness upon his return. He shouldn't be owned in any IDP formats. The Baltimore team D looks like a mediocre fantasy option for Week 6, even against a Giants offense that has struggled the past 2 weeks.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil is officially questionable for Sunday's meeting with the Raiders, but multiple reports have indicated that the team expects him to make his 2016 debut. Dumervil had offseason foot surgery, which kept him out through training camp and the preseason. It's tough to expect his usual productivity right away, and we might even see limited snaps. But his return should help a D that's tied for 8th in the league in sacks. DE Timmy Jernigan is also questionable for Week 4 with a knee issue, but he put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Jernigan seems likely to play.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil took the practice field Monday morning for the 1st time since undergoing offseason foot surgery. We'll see if he gets any preseason game action, but don't be surprised if Baltimore holds out the 32-year-old to make sure he's ready for the regular season. Dumervil's best fantasy fit is in sack-heavy IDP leagues, though he can work as a matchup play in more balanced scoring outfits as well. His presence can only help the pass rush, and thus the Baltimore team D.

The Ravens got OLB Terrell Suggs on the practice field Monday for the 1st time since he suffered a torn left Achilles' tendon in last season's opener, according to The Baltimore Sun. That's good news for the Baltimore defense. It's tough to trust the 33-year-old as an IDP target this season, though. Suggs tore his right Achilles' back in 2012. He did return to post 10 sacks in 2013 and 12 in 2014 before last year's injury, but we'll need to see how the veteran looks now before considering him more than a late matchup option in deep fantasy football drafts. The Baltimore D, meanwhile, continues to wait for OLB Elvis Dumervil to return from his offseason foot surgery.

The Ravens' defense will open training camp with top edge rushers Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil on the PUP list. Suggs suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Week 1 last season. He'll turn 34 in October and doesn't look like a great bet for another double-digit sack season. We'll see how soon he can return to the field and how he looks once he gets there. Dumervil had foot surgery right after the season for an unspecified issue that he said he didn't want to linger into 2016. "I feel much better than I felt last year," he told ESPN.com in mid-June. "Everything is looking great, and I'm headed in the right direction." Players can come off the camp PUP list at any point, so we'll keep an eye on Dumervil's return and adjust our 2016 IDP rankings as needed.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil will miss this week's minicamp because of a previously unannounced surgery. "He had what has been termed a preventative procedure," HC John Harbaugh said, per ESPN's Jamison Hensley. "So, he's not ready to go in minicamp. But he'll be ready for training camp." It's not yet clear what Dumervil's operation is seeking to prevent, but Harbaugh said the player will be available to provide more details later. Hensley points out that Dumervil dealt with Achilles' tendinitis during training camp last year.

The Ravens defense will be shifting to primarily a 4-3 front in 2016, according to MMQB.com.  The change might not mean much for the team D in fantasy, but it could mean new position designations for OLBs Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs in IDP formats. It also could significantly impact the way Baltimore approaches early picks in the upcoming NFL Draft. We'll see how this situation develops and sets up for IDP impact.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil is questionable for Sunday's trip to San Francisco. He returned for a limited practice Friday after missing the previous 2 days with a groin injury that knocked him out in Week 5. We'd prefer not to us the Baltimore pass rusher in IDP lineups this weekend, but we'll update his status Sunday in case you're planning to.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil left Sunday's game against the Browns with a groin injury. The team has ruled him out for the day. We'll watch for an official diagnosis early this week. Losing Dumervil would leave an already depleted pass rush barely usable as a fantasy football team defense.

CSN's Clifton Brown reports that Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil will play more snaps in the wake of OLB Terrell Suggs' season-ending Achilles' tear. Dumervil, naturally, says he's excited for the opportunity and hopes it'll turn into more sacks. But he's 31, small for the position at 5'11 and 250 pounds and played just 56.5% of Ravens defensive snaps last year. We'll have to hope that Dumervil doesn't wear down with more playing time. If he doesn't, his IDP numbers should improve at least on more tackle opportunities.

The Ravens list OLB Elvis Dumervil as questionable for Sunday's meeting with the Patriots after he put in only a limited practice Friday.  Dumervil has been dealing with an ankle sprain the past 2 weeks but played his normal snap allotment in Week 15.  Even that's only about half the team total, though.  Add the ankle and a non-favorable matchup with New England, and you've little reason to pay attention to Dumervil in any IDP format this week.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil is ready to return from the ankle sprain that cost him Week 14's game.  Dumervil is active against the Lions tonight after showing up as questionable on the injury report.  Even at 100%, though, he'd be a weak IDP option against a Detroit team tied for fewest sacks allowed.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil returned to practice Friday for the 1st time since spraining and bruising an ankle on Thanksgiving night.  Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun reports that Dumervil appears likely to play Monday night against the Lions.  We're not too interested in risking him as an IDP starter against a Detroit team tied for fewest sacks allowed in the league this season.

The Ravens list OLB Elvis Dumervil as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings.  It's no surprise after he missed practice all week for the sprained ankle he suffered Thanksgiving night.  HC John Harbaugh did say Friday that Dumervil will be a game-time decision, but the team clearly isn't even betting on him being ready.  You should go ahead and consider him out for IDP purposes.  Courtney Upshaw and Pernell McPhee would likely get more snaps in Dumervil's absence.

Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil has missed the 1st 2 days of practice this week while dealing with an ankle sprain he suffered Thanksgiving Night.  HC John Harbaugh conceded Monday that the team would have to "nurse" Dumervil this week, according to The Baltimore Sun.  We'll see if he can get back onto the field before the weekend.  Dumervil's a risk/reward play even if healthy.

According to The Baltimore Sun, LB Elvis Dumervil "was one of the most impressive players during the first week of training camp."  The Denver import reportedly had little trouble beating the blocker in front of him, regardless of who it was.  Dumervil certainly brings an impressive history of pass-rushing and joins a defense that already sported talent in that area.  If Dumervil still carries DL eligibility in your league, he'll be a strong IDP sleeper candidate.  Even at LB, he'll make for an intriguing starter candidate if your league rewards sacks and pressure stats (instead of leaning heavily on tackles).  Check out our IDP projections to see just what we expect.
